  • Tara Lynne’s Geekiary Gift Guide

    Let’s be honest – a lot of websites do gift guides. But I’m going to go ahead and claim that this one is the best because I’m creating it. And because the vast majority of the items on this list are actually, um, affordable…and not necessarily something you would just stumble upon on ThinkGeek or […]



  • The Brits Have the Comic Con: Titan Entertainment at NYCC

    Getting larger every convention, Titan Entertainment had a massive booth at NYCC this year, complete with merchandise, books, and comics galore. If you aren’t familiar with Titan, check out my Toy Fair review from earlier this year. The exclusive swag available for con goers this year included some Sherlock (a duo pack with Watson – […]


  • Superfight: The Card Game, or The Best Thing to Do on the Subway

    I first came across Superfight back in February thanks to the exclusive LootCrate deck. I wasn’t sure what to make of it then, but now… I have to admit, it’s pretty awesome.

The main booth, which was ticketed this time (a first for Funko), had quite an array of exclusive offerings for con goers. They did open […]


  • ThinkGeek has a new retail store, and it’s awesome.

    I’m not quite sure I can describe how excited I was when I received my daily ThinkGeek email yesterday and it mentioned that it was opening day of their first ever retail store…in Orlando. Because as it happens, I was visiting friends in Orlando this weekend, and first things first we carved out some time […]


  • “Holy Here We Go Again!”: Loot Crate’s July Box

    So, I know I missed out on reviewing the May and June boxes from Loot Crate. I did get them, but life got in the way, and to be honest, I wasn’t really impressed with the contents from those months. That’s my opinion, because I know people who thought these were the best boxes yet. […]
